Is it your New Year’s resolution to refresh your music catalogue; to stop running in place listening to the same music you listened to five years ago? Do you want to be a little hipster sometimes and find yourself saying stuff like “I listen to bands that don’t even exist yet”? Look no further, simply follow my Spotify playlist called Less known bands/artists. Hours of songs by musicians that deserve recognition. And trust me, I add a lot of promising music to this list. I only add artists/bands that have less than 25 000 listeners on Last.fm (sometimes I let them stay until 30 000, but it doesn’t happen a lot). Once they’ve gained a lot of recognition I remove them. I’ve had Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Matthew and the Atlas, Balance and Composure, Perfume Genius and Young the Giant on the list to name a few. A lot of different genres are represented, so if there’s a track you don’t like just skip it and hope for the next one to be better.
